This summer, as you are planning your vacation (well, not if you’re a wedding photographer in the midst of wedding season, but everyone else), there are many things to consider. With the impending carry on restrictions that may wreck havoc on your plans to bring all your gear, to packing clothes and essentials, to planning out the destinations you want to see and photograph, getting ready to travel may be one of the more stressful parts of traveling.
Before going on your next adventure, you should consider a few important things to help make your trip more enjoyable. Here are some ideas to help you take awesome photos without having to worry about your gear. The ~3 minute video by COOPH was all shot in Venice, Italy (which is #1 on my travel wish list), and gives us some simple tips to make your travel photos even better.
The video features photographer Ray Demski and begins with simple tips on what to do before your trip, including taking a photo of your business card in case you lose your camera and some good Samaritan is trying to find you to return it. The middle section gives a great tip on how to easily remove other tourists from your photo using Photoshop. And the last section has a tip on using the 3-2-1 method for backing up your photos. The rest of the video contains more simple and effective tips for the travel photographer.
